I was just wondering if anyone has used one of these and what their opinion is. I believe you get what you pay for, but $1800 is a lot of money. I own quite a few leupold scopes and there is a reason for that. They make excellent equipment. I'm looking to buy only one spotting scope for a long time. I currently have a tasco spotting scope that was given to me which is worthless, I dont even bring it to the range anymore. I am going to be shooting out to 600 yards with my 308 and was wanting something that would allow me to see where I'm hitting. I'm not sure if any of the scopes are capible of this but I figure the leupold is if any. Any advice on this subject would be appriciated. If nobody has reviewed this spotting scope I would be willing to take on this task, I would just need to borrow one... I swear I'll return it. Suggestions on other brands are welcome too.

Thanks in advance,
derekp

Hi Derek

Haven't tested that one, yet, but should be a good choice, yes.

Spotting scopes are used at those distances by bench rest shooters to judge mirage and air currents, but only rarely does the atmosphere allow you to use a scope at that distance for scoring, even with the highest grade scopes. At those distances, you need to be thinking of a remote camera setup or a spotter to help to consistently score targets.
